Cancer Society celebrating Daffodil Month
The Canadian Cancer Society is marking its 60th annual Daffodil Month.
Canadians can show their support for people living with cancer and to honour those who have died by wearing a daffodil pin or buying fresh daffodils.
Society spokesperson Debi Dempsey says the money raised during the campaign helps make a difference.
“The progress that’s been made since the 1940’s is very significant. Survival rates in the 1940’s was 25%. Today – through research…[and support from donors], it’s 60%”, she says.
Dempsey says volunteers will be going door to door collecting money for the Society…and with each donation will hand out a daffodil pin.
